Today our government is being run by a titular President who is not merely cognitively challenged, but is a demonstrated liar. A man without any honorable principles who has been accused of conduct which arguably justifies not only impeachment but expulsion from office if not outright penal servitude. His cabinet appointments are the laughingstock of the world. Their conduct is so outrageous that even the heretofore supporting media is beginning to question their ineptitude.

Is America Dying

By: Bill Schoettler

January 21, 2023

What makes a country? Borders, language, customs. Okay, this is perhaps an oversimplification…but nonetheless accurate. When we started with our 13 colonies we had some pretty good borders between each colony and, of course, around the land which we controlled and claimed. As the country grew and expanded, new states, each with its own border, were added and the nation we were creating also defined its ever-growing borders. Ultimately we took in two states whose borders didn’t connect to the other 48 but were still defined and included in our nation. 

Along the way, we spoke English. There were German and French and Italian immigrants but they all learned English. As more and more people came to the USA they also learned English. Some of the immigrants settled in areas where they felt familiar, with friends and families, and many times these enclaves of similar heritage continued their familiar customs. But they also adopted our nation’s customs, holidays, and, of course, the English Language. 

Our customs honored many concepts, the “indigenous people”, sometimes called “Native Americans”, the founding groups who initiated, promulgated, and established the very foundation upon which we built our brand of civilization, the people we honored for their contributions to this country and, not to be ignored the parade of heroes who were honored in their time with statues, sometimes holidays and always reverence and thanks. 

We were never directly challenged in our history until our country was viciously attacked by the Japanese when they bombed Pearl Harbor, on December 7, 1941. The day that will live in infamy. And this attack drew together the entire nation which responded with millions of men and women, an outpouring of resources, and a national determination to not just overcome the virulent disease that inspired that attack but to eradicate it from the face of the planet. We, along with our allies, were successful. 

In 1945 the Nation drew a deep breath, focused its energies on the economic principles of capitalism, and became the most economically powerful and envied country in the world. Our goods and services were exported around the globe as our technology led the world in virtually all fields of science and agriculture and industry. “Made in America” was a symbol eagerly sought around the planet. 

Right after WWII ended we were confronted with an international conspiracy fostered by the Union of Soviet Socialist Republic, Russia, whose principles of communism contradicted everything our country stood for in terms of representative democracy, capitalism, and the various freedoms guaranteed by our Constitution. Thus began what was called the “Cold War”, a conflict fought at the ballot box, in the United Nations, through surrogate countries around the world, and in our own universities and the entertainment industry. The casualties were measured not just in lives lost but in dollars spent in anticipation of a “hot war”, in competing with Russia in the development of not just weapons of war but virtually every technology that might contribute to weapons of war. And, over the roughly 45 years from the end of WWII to approximately 1990, we won that war also. 

Our victory wasn’t celebrated with parades, no statues displaying heroes, there is no national holiday celebrating the end of the Cold War, there are only memories (quickly fading) and the philosophical remnants which continue to gnaw away. 

In 1950 North Korea invaded South Korea and the USA, honoring its perceived moral obligation, entered another war, this time not to physically defend the USA but to defend the principles of democracy we had been fostering in South Korea. Also, it was known and clearly demonstrated that North Korea was sponsored and aided by both Communist China and Communist Russia. This “war”, termed a “police action” succeeded in  (mostly) restoring the borders of South Korea and ended 3 years after it began.  

Beginning in the early 1960s, in an area with then recently described borders, a revolution (war, if you wish) broke out in an area we know as Viet Nam. In actuality, the geographic area had been a colony of France before WWII, and even after that war, the French continued to exert control over the area. In 1954 the French were essentially ejected from the area and Vietnam was “divided” between North (under the auspices of China and Russia) and South —philosophically supported by our country. The North began sending agents provocateurs as well as Communist-inspired and supplied militia and began eating away at the government of South Vietnam. The United States responded by supplying material, then material and “advisors” and training and military equipment to support the government of South Vietnam. In 1964 a North Korean patrol boat actually fired on a United States destroyer that was patrolling in international waters.  The United States responded with ten years of massive military action which ended inconclusively. We did not “win” that war but today the country of Vietnam is a tourist destination. The conflict ultimately ended in 1975.

Other than minor skirmishes and the occasional eruption of shooting and killing around the world, the USA was relatively quiet, focusing on its own issues and, of course continuing to pursue the “Cold War”.

1990, when Russia essentially abandoned its Union of Soviet Socialists and many countries previously under the “control”of Russia became “independent”, that is, they could now control their own destinies as opposed to those destinies being dictated by Russia, from roughly 1990 to 2001 our country was “at peace”. Sort of. 

But during the Cold War years, with the resulting peace and prosperity we developed and enjoyed, with the privation and sacrifices made during the Big War fading like the bad memory it was, new generations raised without blackout curtains and air-raid drills and saving papers and having gasoline rationed were being born and raised and taught by professors and “experts” who never heard a gun fired or a bomb bursting except perhaps on the Fourth of July. 

With no real enemies to face, our country began fragmenting into factions that considered such things as a muddled view of history, misconceptions about our economic system (i.e., capitalism), better gasoline mileage, banning cigarettes, and unraveling the complexities of drugs and the mysteries of modern medicine. Smoke-free areas were identified, racial quotas were discussed (and pretty much banned by SCOTUS),  accommodations were made for multiple languages to be on ballots and the sensibilities of individuals became something about which to be concerned [as opposed to “suck it up” and “don’t be a cry-baby” and “when the going gets tough, the tough get going”].

Along came 9/11, not the emergency number 911 but the attack on the Twin Towers in New York City which killed roughly 3000 people and set the entire nation back on its heels. The perpetrators were not from a single country (though this may be argued to the contrary) but what appeared to be a religious philosophy sponsored by some governments. In the absence of a defined and easily identifiable enemy, it was challenging to mount a retaliatory response. Our President declared a “war on terror” and the country began investigating and examining the Middle East countries from which came the culprits who flew the planes that attacked us. 

Iran and Iraq became known to US citizens as birthing grounds for radical jihadists, individuals, groups, and even populations which were raised with the teaching that the United States was the Great Satan, that our country was out to destroy not only their way of life but the very existence of their countries. The only answer, so generations of youngsters in those countries were told, is to kill all US citizens/residents/representatives. Plus, as a bonus, these people were told that their religion called for them to spread the philosophy and teachings of Islam around the world and convert all unbelievers (or kill those who refused to convert). There is a dispute over this interpretation of the religious tenants of Islam but unfortunately, there are too many followers who accept such interpretations. 

Now, for the first time in many years, the United States had an enemy. The trouble with this enemy was that he/it/they had no easily identifiable army, no insignia worn by their fighters, and they followed no standard military approach. Fighting this enemy required soldiers on the ground, technological apparatus, specialized armaments, and specially trained soldiers of our own. But this enemy didn’t operate in the traditional way of previous combatants. Daily news broadcasts did not show large maps with huge black arrows of US troops attacking enemy strongpoints. Instead, there were short articles showing village scenes where heavily-armed Americans were confronted by apparently unarmed villagers clad not in uniforms but local clothes that were indistinguishable one from the other, man from woman and combatant from non-combatant. New terms like I.E.D.(Improvised Explosive Device) appeared along with stories of atrocities where the enemy would actually behead captured American soldiers. The US retaliated with drones, electronic surveillance, and night-vision equipment. Pitched battles were rare but casualties were the same as in previous wars. People were killed, maimed, and psychologically damaged. And, the American people were never really asked to “get behind” a war effort. 

Movies were made showing elements of this fighting, books were written and videos of flag-covered coffins being returned to the United States. 

But this fighting was on foreign soil, for the most part. There was, however, a continuing attack upon the very foundation of our country. An attack against the principles of democracy as we knew it. An attack against our children, our teenagers, and college enrollees who were being taught that our history was unimportant and should be changed anyway.  

We learned that there were many new genders, men could have babies and compete with women in sports. The climate was changing because we continued to burn fossil fuels and turning to alternate sources of electricity was the only way to save the planet from extinction. 

Groups of individuals who felt particularly victimized by what was called “white supremacy” cried out for “reparations” and demanded preferential treatment. Competition was no longer appropriate and instead preferential treatment for some was the only way to have all people truly equal in the long run. Capitalism was not just old-fashioned it was the root of economic evil that would destroy the country. After all, if God made all people truly equal then all people should have everything the same. 

Today we are struggling with these new concepts, ideas, and programs that have been imposed upon us by our government being taught in the schools that supervise the rearing of our children. Athletics have been turned upside down when the public cries for more colored coaches but not for more white players. Standards for admission to prestigious universities are bent to allow entrance to under-prepared and ill-equipped students, and programs are seriously considered to reduce or eliminate licensing requirements that were originally designed to assure the public of genuine expertise and [sort of] guarantee good results when hiring an “educated expert” in fields of medicine, law, or business. 

Emotional security and protection are considered more important than physical security when previously promulgated laws designed to protect all members of society are ignored in the interests of foregoing the prosecution of some people because they are “over-represented” in statistical analysis of many crimes. Meanwhile, concepts of representation in other statistics are conveniently ignored. 

Millions of people have crossed our southern border in the past two years when physical barriers and border guards were either eliminated or restricted in their functions to permit such crossings. 

Drugs, such as fentanyl (which kills hundreds of thousands of US citizens) flow freely across that border. Members of religious groups and national groups that actually harbor not just negative feelings against our country but with the specific intent to cause harm to our citizens continue to enter.

Today our government is being run by a titular President who is not merely cognitively challenged, but is a demonstrated liar. A man without any honorable principles who has been accused of conduct which arguably justifies not only impeachment but expulsion from office if not outright penal servitude. His cabinet appointments are the laughingstock of the world. Their conduct is so outrageous that even the heretofore supporting media is beginning to question their ineptitude.

Does this sound depressing? Do you read this and despair that our country will ever survive? 

I do. 

I also have faith that there are on the horizon some glimmers of light in the otherwise dark, dark tunnel through which we are being led. It took courage and fortitude for this nation of ours to survive the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune. We endured and overcame to get where we are today. 

I pray to God, the very Being whose existence is not only doubted but often denied by those who now lead us.  I pray that we may survive and that the great leaders whose past lives have led us through trials and tribulations will yet inspire new leaders who can lift up the spirit of America and Make America Great Again.

WHO RESPECTS JORGE BERGOLIO MORE, TRADS OR HIS FELLOW JESUITS?

Proselytizing the Popesplainers

 Kennedy Hall January 23, 2023 

The following information comes from an article from my esteemed colleague, Michael Haynes at LifeSiteNews, and I have mixed in my brazen and snarky commentary throughout.

Before we continue, we should define a term, the term popesplainer.

What is a popesplainer?

Simply put, popesplainers are most of the talking heads on Catholic YouTube who gaslight you into thinking that Pope Francis doesn’t preach what amounts to at least materially heretical statements.

Relax guys, no one here is “judging the pope” in a formal sense, as that is not up to me.

Also, please don’t pretend that anything is lost in translation, porque el Papa dijo lo que dijo en español, un idioma que hablo con fluidez.

That is Spanish for “the pope said what he said in Spanish, a language I speak fluently.”

Devo dirlo in Italiano? Ou peut-être en Français?

We can get pretty linguistic up in here if we have to.

Haynes wrote:

Pope Francis has once again condemned Catholic efforts of evangelization, stating that “Catholicism is not proselytism,” while adding he has “no explanation” for the drop in vocations in recent decades.

The Pontiff made the comments in an interview he gave to Spanish language news outlet Mundo Negro back in mid-December, which was published on January 13.

He made the statement while fielding a question about the Second Vatican Council, having been asked whether the Church’s “mission” had changed since the Council and if “the Church and the people need another Mission.”

“Thank God, yes,” replied Francis. “Historians say that it takes 100 years for a council to have a complete result, so it is halfway there. So many things have changed in the Church, so many things for the better…”

The 86-year-old Pope referenced what he described as “two interesting signs.” Firstly he stated that the “first imprudent effervescences of the Council have already disappeared,” clarifying that he was referring to “liturgical effervescences.” His second suggestion that the Council was having an effect on the Church was that “anti-conciliar resistances are emerging, resistances that were not seen before, something typical of every process of maturity.”

Let’s pause here for a second.

None of this should shock us at this point, but in essence the pope has said that if you are a traditionalist, then you are immature.

Ah yes, those immature Catholics who think we should not be Modernists, heretics, liberals or most modern day Jesuits — but I repeat myself.

Those immature nincompoops who say things like: “Hey, we should probably heed the words of the Council of Trent and still follow them,” or “it is probably not a good idea to keep doing stuff that caused everyone to leave the Church and go to hell.”

I know, such immaturity on display.

Not only are Trads immature, but the bestest thing to happen at Vatican II had to do with culture and diversity, oh, and trying to convert people is a sin.

Francis welcomed changes which he attributed to the Council, such as an increased “respect for cultures” and the “inculturation of the Gospel” – things which were an “indirect consequence of the Council.”

Highlighting this “evangelization of culture,” Francis expanded by saying that he was talking of “evangelizing, of announcing, and nothing more, with much respect.”

Perhaps we might harken back to those days of pre-Christian paganism, you know, the days of human sacrifice, ritual sex slavery, polygamy, superstition and all that fun stuff.

How much better it would have been if the Spanish missionaries would’ve encountered those Aztecs where they were at in their faith journey, and not tried to convince them to stop cutting out human hearts and eating them while they were still warm.

Or, what a better world it would be if those peace-loving Druids had remained a dominant culture on the Emerald Isle. Sure, they were devil worshippers and some of the most deranged people in history, but I bet with all that murderous aggression they would have put out a heck of a rugby team.

Who can forget the pederasts of Ancient Greece, or the wonderful opportunity for a young woman to be taken as a concubine in the Middle East?

If missionaries would have had Pope Francis’ sage wisdom, those perfect cultures of noble savages could have been left to their devices and eaten as many human hearts as they wanted, and followed things up with a culturally expressive psychedelic ritual orgy.

Wait, did I lose my train of thought? I thought we were talking about pre-Christian societies, not the annual Democrat meeting at Bohemian Grove.

Lets see what else il Pappa had to say.

Consequently, he argued that “proselytism” was the “most serious sin that a missionary can have.”

Therefore, the most serious sin that a missionary can have is proselytism. Catholicism is not proselytism.

Well, isn’t that interesting. Now, the popesplainers will tell you that the pope couldn’t have meant that converting others was a sin, because when Pope Francis uses the word “proselytism” he surely means going and finding pagans and beating them with clubs until they become Christian.

Now, forgive my ignorance and inability to commune with the spirit of Vatican II, but I believe the pope actually means what he says.

Proselytism is defined as to persuade someone to change their religious or political beliefs or way of living to your own.

So if Pope Francis is smart enough to read and write, which I am sure he is, then it seems that he said it was the “most serious sin” for a missionary to try and persuade people to become Christian. Which in turn means it is a serious sin, in the eyes of Pope Francis, to convince someone to save their soul.

If we let all those non-Christians go to hell, at least they will have the satisfaction of going there without being proselytized.

One last thing, it is a bit ironic that the popesplainers will undoubtedly go to the ends of the earth to explain that Pope Francis couldn’t have meant what he said, and that you are a big bad mean Rad Trad if you say otherwise.

But who respects the pope more?

The popesplainer who tries to convince you that Pope Francis is too stupid to understand the words that come out of his own mouth, or the so-called Rad Trad who has enough respect for the man to believe he has the use of reason and a command of language and actually knows the meaning of the words he uses?

HERE IS A COMMON-SENSE PLAN TO SAVE OUR NATION IN THE IMMEDIATE FUTURE

January 21, 2023

HOW ABOUT A FISCAL 

RESPONSIBILITY CAUCUS, etc?

By: Marvin L. Covault, Lt Gen US Army, retired,

January 18, 2023

CAUCUSES: We have heard a lot lately about the House Freedom Caucus but did you know there were 460 caucuses in the 117th Congress? I assume there will be at least that many in the 118th Congress. 

A congressional caucus is a group of members who meet to pursue common legislative objectives.  Additionally, there are coalitions, study groups, task forces, and working groups. I’ve been through the alphabetical list of caucuses and cannot find one that has to do with fiscal responsibility.  But if you are interested in the Bourbon Caucus, the Peanut Caucus, or perhaps the Rodeo Caucus, no problem.

That’s our Congress, elected to do the people’s work. Ostensibly they are there to find solutions for our most pressing problems. For example, the country is financially broke and getting more so every day.  The national debt, all $31.35 trillion of it, as of 5 January 2023, is increasing at a rate of $2.7 billion per day. The debt is currently $93,997 for every person in the U.S. and we do not have a fiscal responsibility caucus.

DEBT HISTORY:  

In the past, our largest deficits were caused by increased spending around national emergencies like major wars or the Great Depression.  That excuse does not work today.

A good way to express debt is as a percent of our Gross Domestic Product during a corresponding timeframe.  For example, in 2007 the debt was 35% of GDP.  Then we had the tax-and-spend eight years of the Obama/Biden misadministration and by 2016 it had more than doubled to 76% of GDP. Obama/Biden set the stage for an unprecedented tax-and-spend economy and the national debt doubled from about ten to twenty trillion dollars while taxes increased.

As debt grows so does the interest we pay. In the first two months of this fiscal year (October and November 2022), the U.S. made $103 billion in gross interest payments on the debt. At some point, interest on the debt will become the fastest-growing part of the federal budget. Experts tell us in ten years our interest will nearly triple from where it is today.  This is unsustainable.

LOOKING AHEAD: 

Given all that, here are four important points about FY2023:

One, the Congressional Budget Office predicts deficit spending to average about $2.7 billion per day; almost $1 trillion for the year.

Two, The government spent $534 billion to service the debt in FY2022 and that number is expected to be over $600 billion this year and could soon become a $1 trillion annual expense.

Three, Biden will continue to gloat that he is reducing the budget deficit.  Compared to what?  Yes, compared to the pandemic costs, but FY2023 spending will be well above pre-pandemic levels

Four, the day Biden was sworn in as president the national debt was $27.8 trillion; today it is $31.3.  Do the math; no pandemic, no war, no depression. A tax-and-spend economy.  The only national emergencies are uncontrolled immigration, rampant crime, record inflation, and energy costs/availability; all self-inflicted wounds that never should have happened. 

WHAT DO WE-THE-PEOPLE THINK ABOUT ALL THIS DEFICIT SPENDING AND RISING DEBT?  

Surveys tell us that 76% of voters want the president and Congress to spend more time addressing the debt and 83% say their level of concern has risen recently. But do we even have a congressional caucus that is articulating the problems, speaking out for their constituents, or proposing solutions? No, Congress is clearly on a tax-and-spend binge. We do not have a revenue problem; we continue to have a spending problem.

DEFINE THE PROBLEM:  

This is not a difficult task.  Just sit back and think about how Congress has done its business in the past year. Then give them a grade; I’m somewhere between a “D” and an “F” for the following reasons:

Total lack of discipline: For the budget process there is an existing schedule with exact deadlines for various committees and Congress as a whole.  On that timeline, they are to complete their pieces of the annual budget process for the budget to be passed each year by 30 September and go into effect 1 October to begin the fiscal year. This has not happened since 1996.  If leaders cannot learn from their mistakes and correct gross errors in the conduct of critical operations, how are We-The-People supposed to trust and respect them?

Pathetic leadership:  The majority and minority leaders in the House and Senate all get an “F” for leadership for the annual failed budget process. They allow the Committees as well as Congress as a whole to ignore their deadlines thereby knowingly creating an annual budget crisis and the need for continuing resolutions.  Continuing resolutions result in disregard for the thousands of government plans, programs, resolutions, and changes that were to begin on the first of October. Furthermore, continuing resolutions also disregard the elimination of costly programs and procedures that were to have ended on 30 September.  Continuing resolutions are costly, inefficient, ineffective, and wasteful and should never happen. 

The continuing resolution fiasco eventually leads to threats of a government shutdown. At that point, the so-called Congressional “leaders” created the annual Congressional crisis.

A potential government shutdown crisis leads to the passage of something akin to the recent Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2023 which Congress passed on 23 December 2022.  That monster omnibus bill for $1.7 trillion was 4,155 pages long, was available for Congressional member review for only a couple of days, and contained an estimated 4,000 earmarks resulting in untold billions of wasted dollars.  None of those expenditures had seen the light of day in a committee hearing, We-The-People have never heard of them and most would never pass if considered alone.

That omnibus bill also became the vehicle for the Biden Administration to sustain its tax-and-spend mentality.

In addition to the monster omnibus bill, it has become the norm rather than the exception to pass fewer bills each year that number in the thousands of pages, that are unread but voted on and full of needless pork.  My favorite recent earmark was a provision that will fund $10 million for gender studies in Pakistan. 

This is just a summary of a dysfunctional organization with pathetic leadership. The point is, this is a big part of the out-of-control spending problem that must get fixed if we are to get real about reducing deficit spending. 

FIVE POTENTIAL CONSEQUENCES OF DEFAULT ON THE U.S. DEBT     (as reported by Market Realist):

One, interest rates would soar; killing businesses and personal investment.

Two, the value of the dollar would take a beating globally; strengthening China’s role in world trade.

Three, import prices would rise through the roof; everything would cost more.

Four, inflation would hit hard; impacting mostly the poor and middle class.

Five, credit rating downgrades could tank the stock market; personal investments and 401Ks would be negatively impacted.

All of that could come crashing down on us like a massive avalanche and we would soon be unable to recognize our once-great country. 

GIVEN ALL OF THE ABOVE, CAN DEFICIT SPENDING AND RISING NATIONAL DEBT BE FIXED?  YES. 

Yes, it can be fixed but not by one action or one bill.  It will take a series of legislative actions by the 118th Congress, led by the Republican-controlled House of Representatives. And there is no requirement to invent a new approach. There is a model that worked in the 1994 midterm election and it will work now.

Newt Gingrich, the minority whip in the House of Representatives in the 1994 Contract with America, detailed the actions the Republicans promised to take if they became the majority party for the first time in 40 years.  In the Contract, Gingrich promised a series of bills would be passed in the first 100 days of the new Congress. It is a little late but the concept is still valid today and can still accomplish the following three very important functions:

One, inform America that the Republicans have a plan beyond conducting investigations which is all we have heard the Republican leaders talk about since November.

Two, shut down Biden’s insistence that the Republicans don’t stand for anything.

Three, put the Senate and the Executive Branch on notice that there are some issues important to the American electorate coming their way for a decision.

Between 73 and 88 percent of Americans, in differing polls, say Biden has the nation on the wrong track. Irrespective of those findings, Biden said publicly after the 2022 midterms that he will do “nothing” different in the next two years.

Given the gravity of our current situation concerning deficit spending and national debt, and the fact that the Gingrich model has worked in the past, the recommendation is that the following prioritized list of ten pieces of legislation be drafted and set in motion immediately by Speaker McCarthy and passed in the House in the next 100 days.

Priority one is the first four proposed pieces of legislation that are all in some way related to reducing deficit spending and lowering the national debt.

First, HOW CONGRESS SHOULD OPERATE. This centerpiece legislation is intended to drastically change the way Congress operates thereby changing how every piece of stand-alone legislation works its way expeditiously from inception to a vote on the floor of the House and Senate.  Since Congress is incapable of disciplining itself, the concept is to provide external oversight over the entire legislative process from the inception of a Bill to the vote on the floor. Every Bill will be standalone and will be dealt with on a prescribed timeline.  Every budget will be completed by 30 September.  There will be no earmarks.

The first draft of this proposed legislation has already been published on WeThePeopleSpeakling.com on 18 November 2022. And the bill is not 4000 pages or 400, it could be/should be less than 40 pages. Every interested American could read, understand and weigh in with their Representative/senator on the proposal. The cost to taxpayers is zero.

Second, REDUCTION OF THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH. This piece of legislation has to do with the mass of the Executive Branch and where the President’s budget comes from.  The budget boils up out of the massive departments and agencies throughout the Executive Branch. Thousands of internal small teams, branches, divisions, etc. provide little or no value added but they each generate a budget requirement to continue to exist.  This legislation will provide a detailed description of how to go about conducting a six-month review of every element of the Executive Branch, determine its worth and eliminate those with no value added, and thereby reduce the size of the President’s budget submission.  

The first draft of this proposed legislation has already been published on WeThePeopleSpeaking.com on 18 November 2022 and it could be/should be less than 40 pages. Every interested American could read, understand and weigh in with their Representative/Senator on the proposal. The cost to taxpayers is zero.

Third, THE TAX CODE. This piece of legislation to be passed within 100 days has to do with the Tax Code and related regulations; all 70,000 plus pages of it.  It cannot be fixed. Hit the delete button and start over. Under this legislation, all federal revenue will be generated based on individual gross income with one and only one deduction allowed; charitable contributions that meet certain criteria. 

This will drastically simplify the Tax Code and everyone can and will understand it.  Currently, tax law is a yo-yo used in a very disruptive way by administrations.  Case in point, in 2017 President Trump cut taxes for every taxpayer, business, and corporation. As a result, gross income went up, GDP grew, and after a short lag-period federal revenue increased.  Along comes the vengeful tax-and-spend Joe Biden and his Democrat-led Congress who have deleted the Trump tax cuts, added new taxes, and generally done everything possible to prohibit sustained growth in the overall economy.

The first draft of this proposed legislation has already been published on WeThePeopleSpeaking.com on 8 December 2022 and the legislation could be/should be less than 40 pages. The cost to taxpayers is zero.

Fourth, ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION. This piece of legislation to reduce spending has to do with illegal immigration. In FY2020 border officials encountered 648,822 illegal immigrants nationwide and steps were ongoing to further secure the border. Migrant border crossings in FY2022 topped 2.76 million and are now not only a huge national expense but also a national security nightmare. In the first quarter of FY2023 illegal migrant encounters have averaged about 7,000 per day.

Illegal immigrant households receive an average of $5,692 in federal welfare benefits every year, more than the average U.S. citizen household at $4,431. The 2018 estimate was that every new illegal immigrant will cost more than $82,000 over their lifetime.

But the true cost of illegal immigration is hidden by a sophisticated money laundering operation. Democrats want to maximize illegal immigration but they don’t want their fingerprints on it.  While partially funded by private donations, most of the NGO financing of illegal immigrants comes from American taxpayers.

Nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) provide shelter, food, plane and bus tickets, debit cards, etc. Catholic Charities, for example, is the largest NGO involved in the trafficking of illegal aliens on both sides of the border. Most of their funding is not from the collection plate but from taxpayer dollars.

The Biden open borders policy is costing U.S. taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars and it doesn’t have to be that way. There is a simple way to shut down the mass migration of thousands per day.  Here is the outline:

Hundreds of thousands of noncitizens are law-abiding, hard-working U.S. residents.  Under the new legislation, employers will only be allowed to employ those who have an illegal immigrant work ID card.  Employers violating the law will be subject to a $25,000 fine per worker.

The work ID cards will be issued by DMV stations throughout the U.S. over a six months period to every illegal migrant who has a job, wants to remain in the U.S., and has no felony record. This program could be implemented within weeks of passing the legislation.

Once foreigners who are contemplating immigrating illegally figure out that they will not have time to reach the U.S., get settled, get a job and then get an ID card, all within that six-month time frame, will realize it is hopeless to approach the border. At that point, every illegal immigrant inside the U.S. without a worker ID will be subject to deportation. The mass migration will be over. It’s that simple and self-policing.

ID card holders must renew their cards each year. If they committed a felony or failed to pay taxes the card will not be renewed and they will be deported.

This will not stop gang members, criminals, terrorists, or human and drug trafficking immigrants from attempting to cross the border.  But with the Border Patrol Agents no longer processing thousands of migrants per day, they will be on duty along the entire border, performing border patrol and catching the criminals. 

After five years with a good record, an illegal immigrant will be authorized to apply for U.S. citizenship. 

The first draft of this proposed legislation has already been published on WeThePeopleSpeaking.com on 13 November 2022 and the legislation could be/should be less than 25 pages. The cost to taxpayers is zero.

Having completed those four issues most closely associated with deficit spending and national debt, the fifth piece of legislation has to do with elections. 

Mr. Speaker, there is a 100-car freight train barreling down the tracks at 80 feet per second and you are stalled on the tracks in your new Mercedes and the seat belt won’t release.  There is about to be a train wreck.  All the evidence from recent national elections tells us at some point there will be a complete national election meltdown and it will split this nation in half. Metaphorically speaking you need to get out of that seat belt right now.

ELECTION REFORM LEGISLATION is needed because existing and potential fraud comes in many forms.

Inaccurate voter registration rolls exist in every state. For example, in January 2019, California was ordered by a federal judge to begin removing approximately 1.5 million invalid voter registrants from their rolls. LA county alone has a registration rate of 112% of its adult citizen population. Nearly all of the invalid voters on the rolls would in all probability receive a mail-in ballot.

ü Mail-in ballots provide too many opportunities for fraud.

ü Fraudulent ballot harvesting has been well documented.

ü Fraud by election officials does exist.

ü Lack of chain of custody of ballots is a common extensive problem.

ü Chaotic behind-the-scenes ballot counting procedures are all too prevalent.

There is a Democrat movement towards non-citizen voting. In December 2021 the New York City council passed an ordinance allowing over 800,000 noncitizens to vote in city elections declaring, “New York city must be seen as a shining example for other progressive cities to follow.”

The list of potential problems is too long.  A July 2021 poll of 800 registered voters (31% Democrats, 29% Republicans, and 31% Independents) revealed the following:

ü 87% were against ballot harvesting.

ü 77% rejected the Democrat claim that voter ID is racist.

ü 78% agreed with voter signature verification and chain of custody controls.

ü 89% agreed that voter rolls need to be cleaned up.

ü 88% believe states should not send mail-in ballots to the general public and non-citizens.

What about solutions? 80% of the 800 voters in that poll agree that Voter ID is a key security measure.

Honest elections are a cornerstone of our nation.  When we lose confidence in its validity, we have lost America. Voter ID is a quick, painless fix.  It will solve all of the above-listed election problems. Voter ID is Election Reform.  The Democrats will call it “racist” as they have done in the past which is fine because the American people know better, and they will resent the Democrats for rejecting Voter ID.

 Election reform legislation must be a high-priority action for Republicans if they are to do the peoples bidding in “The Peoples House.” The percentages in the above poll tell the whole story. 

The first draft of this proposed legislation has already been published on WeThePeopleSpeaking.com on 16  November 2022 and the legislation could be/should be, not 800 pages like the Democrat version of reform, but less than 25 pages. The cost to taxpayers is zero.

EDUCATION. Also included in the 100-day list of priority legislation should be specific measures to fix the pathetic state of education throughout America. The first draft of this proposed legislation has already been published in WeThePeopleSpeaking.com on 13 November 2022 and the legislation could be/should be less than 50 pages. The cost to taxpayers is zero.

TERMS OF OFFICE AND TERM LIMITS are no longer in the nation’s best interest. They need to be reformed and should be included in the 100-day priority legislation list.  The first draft of this proposed legislation has already been published on WeThePeopleSpeaking.com on 28 November 2022 and the legislation could be/should be less than 50 pages. The cost to taxpayers is zero.

CAMPAIGN FINANCE is completely out of control with billions of dollars being spent to influence voters and to buy the support of elected officials.  It is unnecessary, unsavory, and uncontrolled.  Just let the people decide based on what the candidates have to say from the “stump.” The first draft of this proposed legislation has already been published on WeThePeopleSpeaking.com on 30 November 2022 and the legislation could be/should be less than 25 pages. The cost to taxpayers is zero.

ELECTION YEAR PRIMARY PROCESS IS A CHAOTIC MESS.  Delegates selected by primary, or by caucus; open primaries, closed primaries; proportional convention delegates, winner-take-all delegates; committed delegates, uncommitted delegates; delegates that are pledged, those that are unpledged; Republican rules, Democrat rules; at-large delegates, congressional district delegates; superdelegates in the Democrat party, Republican pledged delegates either bound or unbound; it needs to be completely rethought. This should be on the 100-day legislation list so that it can be fixed before the 2024 election cycle begins. The first draft of this proposed legislation has already been published on WeThePeopleSpeaking.com on 2 December 2022 and the legislation could be/should be less than 25 pages. The cost to taxpayers is zero.

UNIVERSAL SERVICE FOR AMERICANS (USA).Compulsory service for all 18-year-old Americans has the potential to change and improve the culture of this country. We need legislation to begin the process of formulating the who, what, when, where, why, and how of the program. An entire concept of operations for such a program that could serve as the first draft of the legislation has already been published on WeThePeopleSpeaking.com on 9 December 2022.

There you have it, ten top-priority pieces of legislation that Speaker McCarthy should announce immediately. One thing all successful leaders must do is set priorities. Doing so will build support, create debate, focus supporters, and create a path forward.

CONCLUSIONS:

Speaker McCarthy, you need to stop looking and acting like a Pelosi clone, talking about investigations, and concentrate on putting this nation on a different track.  

Yes, we need to de-weaponize the Justice Department, FBI, and IRS for starters, but let the committee heads drive that train.  Yes, Hunter Biden should probably be prosecuted but that is not your responsibility. 

Yes, Presidents Trump and Biden have been beyond stupid in their handling of classified documents but leave that to the journalists, talking heads on TV, and prosecutors. 

You need to get above the daily headlines, create the headlines, drive the media, concentrate on broader issues, and lead, lead, lead all Republicans toward the 2024 elections.

Specifically, Mr. Speaker, concentrate on passing the 100-day legislation package. About now you, the reader, are saying, doesn’t Covault understand that the Senate is unlikely to pass these bills and even if they do Biden will probably veto them?  I agree with you but the Republicans have to show We-The-People what Republicans are for and what they will do for all Americans. The Democrats will call the legislation racist, or support for the rich, or harmful to the poor –  their usual sound-bite diatribe. That’s OK because the American people will see through that and favor the value added from the proposed legislation. Remember, 80% of Americans believe the country is being led down the wrong track; they are hungry for positive change.

Get a new leader for the Republican National Committee. This is a time-sensitive task as 168 voters (three from each state and territory) will vote on 27 January to select from three self-appointed candidates:

Ronna McDaniel, who has been a complete failure since 2016, wants to be reelected.

Harmeet Dhillon, a California Republican official with no visible experience in leading a large organization or building a national operations plan is on the ballot.

The third candidate, My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell, is fanatical about supporting President Trump, and will likely turn the RNC into a Trump-support operation.

 Mr. Speaker, surely, we can do better. You need to quickly find someone with planning, organizing, and leadership experience. Get them to sign up and push hard to get them elected.  Keep in mind that the RNC has been a complete zero for the last few years and they need to play a leading support role during the lead-up to the 2024 election.   

The RNC needs a complete overhaul and refocus.  The leader does not need to be a politician or good fundraiser or a recognized face.  We desperately need a no-BS, intelligent, experienced leader of organizations, with planning expertise and experience who can take command and lead. For those of you who routinely watch Fox News, you will recognize General Jack Keane, a regular Fox contributor. By just listening to him you understand the depth and breadth of his intellect and leadership ability.  Find someone like Jack to lead the RNC.

Mr. Speaker, your priority job is to change the direction of this nation by getting every Republican candidate in the country in 2024 armed with everything they need to enhance their campaigns. There is a lot more to election preparation than raising money.  Here is a way to facilitate all that:

As soon as possible invite the 27 Republican Governors to a two-day offsite.  There should be only the governors plus four others in the room; the Speaker of the House, the Chairperson of the RNC, a scribe at the whiteboard writing down thoughts from the attendees, and a second scribe capturing it all on a computer. 

The goal of the first meeting is to create a generalized two-year phased operations plan leading to the 2024 election.  Phase one is Planning.  As each phase is about to begin, reassemble and create greater specificity of who, what, when, where, why, and how for everything that needs to be accomplished in that phase. Generally, the phases will be in four-month increments.

The first order of business at every succeeding meeting will be an after-action review of the previous four months’ work.  Answer these three questions:  

ü What did we collectively do well?  

ü What could we have done better?  and, 

ü What specifically is to be accomplished in the upcoming phase?

Generally, the RNC will be tasked to research every element of the op plan and prepare fact sheets and talking points for every campaign issue that, at some point, will be made available to every Republican candidate nationwide.

Beginning with the Phase Two meeting, the RNC Chairperson will provide a detailed in-progress review of what specifically the RNC has accomplished during the previous four months and what is planned for the next four months. For the next two years, the RNC will be the direct support staff for every Republican candidate leading to the 2024 election.

In June 2020, just five months before the general election, the Republican National Committee met and decreed that the 2016 platform would also serve as the 2020 platform.  If you were brain-dead you couldn’t come up with anything as stupid as that.  And to top it off, as of last summer, 2022, the RNC was still showing the 2016 platform on their website. We cannot wait until June of 2024 for the Republican National Committee to tell us what the platform should look like. If we are that disorganized and unprepared going forward to 2024, we deserve to lose

BOTTOM LINE:  The office of the Speaker of the House cannot be business-as-usual going forward.  Speaker McCarthy needs to act quickly; change the Republican Party focus; create and execute a 100-day legislative agenda; get the RNC reoriented, engaged and productive; make positive, forward-looking headlines that the mainstream media cannot ignore; send shock waves through the Democrat Party as they blindly follow Biden’s pledge to change “nothing”leading up to the 2024 election.

Today the Republican Party is leaderless and we cannot wait for some presidential candidate to emerge as the temporary leader; that’s too little, too late.  Mr. Speaker, grab on to the old saying, “When in charge, take charge.”  You are all we have right now and if you can’t or won’t act, we lose.

If you do not take an interest

in the affairs of your government,
then you are doomed to live under
the rule of fools.

OH LORD, GRANT, WE BESEECH YOU, ETERNAL REST TO YOUR PRIEST, FATHER JOHN FEMINELLI, A PRIEST OF THE DIOCESE OF CORPUS CHRISTI WHO HAS DIED THIS DAY

I HAVE JUST RECEIVED WORD OF THE DEATH OF FATHER JOHN FEMINELLI, A RETIRED PRIEST OF THE DIOCESE OF CORPUS CHRISTI WHOM I ORDAINED MANY YEARS AGO.

He was a conservative priest whose fidelity to the teachings of the Church in his ministry and preaching earned him the praise of conservative Catholics and the scorn of liberal Catholics.

At his ordination to the priesthood of Jesus Christ a small group of men from the parish where he had served his diaconal year interrupted the rite of ordination by shouting protests against it because of his conservative preaching particularly objecting to his pro-life homilies. Because I had previously investigated such complaints against Father Feminelli I directed the Cathedral security forces to escort the demonstrators out of the cathedral and the ordination proceeded.

In addition to serving successfully as Pastor in a number of parishes, Father Feminelli served for years as the Chaplain to the “Pink Sisters” Convent in Corpus Christi were his ministry was well loved and is well remembered.

Father Feminelli died of a rapid developing form of cancer, surrounded by his family in New York State and will be buried in that State. Pray for the repose of his soul. Father will be well remembered by all he served and came to know well.

A MEDICAL BLUNDER THAT KILLED A LOT OF PEOPLE AND MADE OTHERS VERY RICH

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Bret Weinstein, an evolutionary theorist, discussed some of the most heavily censored topics today on “The Joe Rogan Experience”
  • From the initial allowance of gain-of-function research to the botched pandemic response, Weinstein believes the COVID-19 pandemic is the largest blunder in human history
  • Research published in Science Immunology reveals a “mind blowing” finding that after three doses of mRNA COVID-19 shots, your immune system may be triggered not to fight
  • As SARS-CoV-2 spread through the population, fear was used to make the population compliant
  • Weinstein explores the possibility that a select group may have had advance notice of the impending pandemic and used that knowledge to position themselves for a financial windfall

Bret Weinstein, an evolutionary theorist, author of “A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century” and host of “The DarkHorse Podcast” was interviewed on “The Joe Rogan Experience,” discussing some of the most heavily censored topics today.1

From discussing why he believes COVID-19 is the “biggest blunder in human history” to how COVID-19 shots may make the human immune system unable to fight off pathogens, the interview is as riveting as it is pertinent to public health.

At the root of the problem is censorship, which has buried information that could have turned the tide of the COVID-19 pandemic early on, and the intentional act of keeping people in the dark, which may have paved the way for massive wealth transfer ahead of the pandemic.

‘Zero Is a Special Number’

Weinstein begins by discussing how the narrative has been able to get so out of control, with free speech openly dampened by those in control. He calls the concept “zero is a special number”:2

“The idea of zero as a special number is that this narrative control would not work if there was even one newspaper that was dedicated to the job of reporting the news. It wouldn’t work if there was even one university that was dedicated to finding what the truth might be. Right?

It doesn’t work if there’s one social media platform in a primary position in which free speech reigns, because in any of these cases, if you had the university that was still interested in truth seeking in an era where everybody else was doing their diversity, equity and inclusion thing, every reasonable person would wanna send their kid there, right?

So it would win in competition almost immediately, and the result would be every other institution would have to change their policy to compete. So if you get even one exception, that’s enough to break this pattern.”

What we face is a corporate stronghold over media combined with a state-run propaganda machine. Countless private-public partnerships between government and corporations bind the two camps together in a pact to dictate “truth” to the public. Weinstein believes Elon Musk’s takeover of Twitter is an attempt to become that single exception, which is why you’re seeing so many people publicly announcing that they’re leaving the platform:3

“The structure that is controlling the narrative understands that it cannot endure that [Twitter becoming a platform for free speech]. And so far it has failed to shut down Elon.

So their next move is actually to get people on one side of this debate to leave so that they can’t prevent Twitter from being a space where people can speak freely, but they can take it out of the position of being a primary social media environment. And in so doing, they will take the number of meaningful exceptions to the free speech control back to zero. That’s what they’re up to.”

They Don’t Want You to Know the Shots Are Gene Therapy

Initially, Weinstein didn’t think the issue of labeling mRNA COVID-19 shots “vaccines” was a big issue, but he’s since changed his mind. “Lots of people were upset by the redefinition of the term vaccine,” he says. “I wasn’t convinced it was an important issue. I have switched sides on this. I now think the definition is vitally important and we’re beginning to see why.”4

The No. 1 reason why Weinstein believes COVID-19 shots are not vaccines is because they do not create immunity to the pathogen. They also use a very different technology than that used by typical vaccines. But if the government began touting a new gene therapy, people would have questioned it. Weinstein explains:5

“What they’ve done is they’ve smuggled in a really, truly radically new technology. And they caused us all not to worry about it very much by using the term vaccine, right? If they had said, alright, we’ve got this pandemic and in order to prevent it from spreading, we’re gonna have everybody take gene therapy.

Everybody would’ve said, what? Gene therapy is that safe? So the point is we had a category and it was called vaccine. And we all thought, you know, there are some crazy folks who are worried about vaccines, but in general, it’s safe. So if something carries that label, it’s probably safe too.”

How COVID Shots Made the Pandemic Worse

As Weinstein and his wife, Heather Heying, an evolutionary biologist and cohost of “The DarkHorse Podcast,” dug deeper, they realized there was no way anyone could know whether COVID-19 shots were safe. “We looked at these technologies and thought, wow, you are intervening in a nested series of complex systems in a way that you can’t possibly predict the outcome.”6

This brought them to the work of Geert Vanden Bossche, Ph.D., a vaccinology expert and former global director of vaccine programs, including work for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. He’s been heavily censored because he’s among those who have warned about immune escape due to the pressure being placed upon the virus during the mass COVID-19 shot campaign.

Bossche describes a general principle in biology, vaccinology and microbiology that if you put living organisms like bacteria or viruses under pressure, via antibiotics, antibodies or chemotherapeutics, for example, but don’t kill them off completely, you can inadvertently encourage their mutation into more virulent strains. Those that escape your immune system end up surviving and selecting mutations to ensure their further survival.

SARS-CoV-2 has a high capacity for mutation but, according to Bossche, if the virus isn’t under pressure, it won’t necessarily see a need to select mutations to, for instance, become more infectious. But if you put it under pressure, as occurred during the mass vaccination campaign — or as Bossche calls it the “one big experiment” — this changes. Weinstein says:7

“What he said is, look, if you vaccinate into a pandemic and you do so broadly across the population, you’re going to drive the evolution of variants … You are going to create an evolutionary arms race, and you were going to cause the number of variants to proliferate.

And, you know, at the time, I couldn’t say for sure that he was right, but what I could say was that he was making evolutionary sense. There was nothing terribly complex about his argument, and it was robust. And I think now we are seeing … that proliferation of variants.”

Are the Shots Triggering Immune Systems to Give Up?

Research published in Science Immunology8 reveals a “mind blowing” finding that after three doses of mRNA COVID-19 shots, your immune system may be triggered not to fight. “It’s a very dangerous discovery,” Weinstein says, that has to do with an elevation in the percentage of IgG4 antibodies:9

“IgG4 is actually part of a system in which the body attenuates its own response to an antigen. So the mind blowing, and you know, it’s an early result, maybe it doesn’t get replicated, but … the implication is that the evolutionary path we have traveled is causing the pathogen now to be able to trigger a response that will cause the immune system not to fight. Nobody knows what happens next …

So the idea that a pathogen, and mind you, not a normal pathogen, a pathogen that we can now be pretty darn certain was engineered by humans, at least in part, that pathogen is now triggering that signal that causes the immune system not to react anymore, means we’re in a whole new landscape.”

Another potential mechanism of harm involves Marc Girardot’s Bolus Theory10 and what happens if a COVID-19 shot, or any shot which is intended to be injected into the muscle, accidentally gets injected into a blood vessel, a demonstrated regular occurrence in hospitals. According to Girardot:11

“Say the direct IV injection of a dose of Pfizer [COVID-19 shot] is diluted by 30 by the time it gets to the aorta, you’d have around 10,000 lipid nanoparticles hitting each square millimeter of endothelium during the very brief passage of the bolus.

Let’s imagine 10% of these vaccine particles penetrate a cell when they hit it. That means that up to 1,000 cells will end up destroyed by the immune system. That’s more than 100% of the cells in that area! Likely irreparable, similar to a third-degree burn.

In the case of a proper intramuscular injection, the maximum concentration would be 25 lipid nanoparticles presenting themselves to the same 1 sq.mm. of endothelial surface. Only three would be uptaken, or less 0.4% of the surface would end up destroyed. Those three cell gaps would be fixed within minutes of the immune attack. And life would go on.

This brief physical phenomenon, similar to an avalanche crashing through your vascular system, is in my opinion the cause of all the adverse effects we have witnessed these past two years, and that have occurred for decades.”

More Clues SARS-CoV-2 Is Not of Natural Origin

Weinstein says he knew very early on in the pandemic that SARS-CoV-2 did not appear to be of natural origin. Further, it didn’t appear to be due to a simple laboratory escape either, but rather was a highly unusual pathogen with “unprecedented genetic alteration” — one that was likely enhanced in a laboratory before it escaped. Even the way it behaves in the human body, harming everything from toes to circulation to the brain is unusual:12

“There’s a reason that a normal pathogen doesn’t do the widescale damage that COVID seems to, and that reason is that, in general, pathogens don’t have an interest in harming you … In fact, they do best when you are healthy enough to walk around and spread them.

And so they tend to spare tissues that do not help them to be transmitted. Well, that’s not the case with this pathogen. This pathogen seems to invade all kinds of tissues that don’t help it to spread.”

The presence of a furin cleavage site on SARS-CoV-2, which is what makes it so transmissible and able to invade tissue so effectively, is another smoking gun. “That’s something that we knew would take a coronavirus and cause it to be highly effective in humans. We knew that before SARS-CoV-2 ever emerged. So, to find it on this virus, even though no other member of the subfamily has it, is conspicuous,” he says.13

The lengths that the mainstream narrative has gone to discredit the lab-origin theory also hint at its relevance:14

“Why are they continually trying to reanimate the explanation that this is a natural spillover event? Because if it isn’t, then we know who did it, right? Anthony Fauci was key to circumventing the ban on gain-of-function research that resulted in the Wuhan lab being funded by us [the U.S.] to do this work. So if this was a natural spillover event from a wet market, then Anthony Fauci is in the clear, right?

If this is the result of ill-conceived gain-of-function research taking place in Wuhan, partially at our direction, that’s a whole different ballgame … those who are responsible cannot allow a full investigation.

I don’t know what will happen if the truth were to fully emerge about, not only what was the explanation for how this virus came into the world when it came into the world … but also what we failed to do, … we failed to deploy …

Because we didn’t deal with the pathogen properly at the beginning, because we didn’t deploy the drugs that we had at our disposal that did work, we ran out the clock on the brief period of time when we might have driven it extinct or at least controlled it.”

The Largest Blunder in Human History

From the initial allowance of gain-of-function research to the botched pandemic response, Weinstein believes the COVID-19 pandemic is the largest blunder in human history. He asks poignant questions, like what would have happened if we had treated COVID-19 the way we treat other emerging pathogens — with trial and error and open discussion until the best course of treatment is identified.

“[If] we just let doctors figure out how to treat it … they would’ve gotten rapidly better at treating this disease, and they would’ve discovered all of the compounds that work. And they would’ve talked to each other about in what way to deploy those compounds, at what dosage. They would’ve discovered all of that stuff,” Weinstein says.15

Instead, as SARS-CoV-2 spread through the population, fear was used to make the population compliant. Data was manipulated, with COVID-19 deaths including people who died “with” COVID, not from it.

“Those numbers caused us to think the pathogen was something other than it was. And it is obvious to anyone seriously analyzing this that COVID isn’t a dangerous pathogen. SARS-CoV-2 is a dangerous pathogen. I’m very worried about where it goes. But the case fatality rate is not one that should have caused us to vaccinate literally billions of people,” Weinstein explains.16

A tweet featured in the interview claimed to be from a doctor who defended her choice to get a COVID-19 shot, saying she did it out of love while antivaxxers were acting out of hate. The tweet turned out to be fake,17 but its sentiment was not a far stretch from reality, as friends, families and colleagues have been torn apart over differing viewpoints during the pandemic.

This divisiveness is not happenstance; it’s very much intentional. “One of the best ways to not look at people as being human is to categorize them as an enemy in some way,” Weinstein says, mentioning mass formation, which involves the formation of a hypnotic state around a shared consensus.

“The mass formation appears to be downstream of an industrial strength propaganda campaign,” Weinstein says. “A very expensive one designed to create these unsolvable puzzles for people so that they would end up in this mindset.”18 The solution begins with continuing to share and spread the truth, and coming together toward this end. “If we don’t do that, then we head into further and further polarization.”19

Who’s Profiting Off Keeping You in the Dark?

Meanwhile, Weinstein explores the possibility that a select group may have had advance notice of the impending pandemic and used that knowledge to position themselves for a financial windfall — and a “cryptic, massive transfer of wealth:”20

“There’s been lots of talk in various publications at this point about the possibility that COVID was circulating earlier than we knew … If you know that a pandemic is coming and that it is going to spread around the globe, and it is going to cause all kinds of alterations, you can, you know, short stocks for cruise ships or airplanes, hotels, right? You can invest in pharmaceutical companies that have useful technologies …

And so the question is, how much of the story here involves something having understood what was coming and having revealed it at a point that it was positioned rather than it having emerged naturally? … I’m as much an outsider to this as anybody, but I will say there’s a version of the story in which our being kept in the dark is a perpetual source of wealth.”

A FEDERAL JUDGE BLEW THE COVER THAT BIDEN AND THE FBI HAD BEEN USING TO PROTECT THEMSELVES FROM THE REVELATION OF THEIR CENSORSHIP OF NEWS UNFAVORABLE TO THEM

It’s hard to argue that the White House has been working to create censorship across the nation. But the Biden Administration and the FBI just took a hard hit by a federal judge on Wednesday in a landmark case focusing on the issue. 

The judge ruled that the FBI can’t shield special agent Elvis Chan from being deposed in a lawsuit brought on by Missouri AG (and soon-to-be senator) Eric Schmitt and Louisiana AG Jeff Landry.

These two men recently launched a lawsuit against Biden and his administration seeking information regarding alleged collusion between the FBI, the Department of Justice, and other agencies with social media companies. They worked together to censor information unflattering to the White House. 

White House lawyers tried to prevent some depositions from taking place, including special agent Elvis Chan. Chan had been identified as having worked with Meta (the parent company of Facebook) to remove some news stories on Facebook. 

Judge Terry Doughty of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana killed the request and allowed the depositions to move forward. 

It has already been reported that Meta was at the center of censoring the Hunter Biden story just before the 2020 elections, and it could have changed the results. 

Mark Zuckerberg admitted on Joe Rogan’s podcast that the FBI had come to them with more than a wink and nudge. They told him that the story was really Russian disinformation, even though they knew that the laptop story was true because they had been in possession of the hard drive for a year. 

Why was the FBI going to Facebook and probably other media companies to stop a negative story about Biden’s family? The only logical answer was to influence the election. 

Now Biden and his FBI may have to face the music.

Revenge of the Real

A Luddite rant.

The Little Faun by Charles Sims

Hi, I’m Mike.  I’m twenty-nine years old, and I’m a technoholic. 

But that’s not surprising.

The huge majority of my generation (younger Millennials) and those that came after us (Generation Z, Generation Alpha) are severely—severely—addicted to technology.  This will be the great crisis our cohorts need to overcome.  I have no doubt about that.

A few days ago, I wrote about this problem in an email to my friend Rod Dreher.  He asked if he could post it on his blog.  I said yes, so he did.  Maybe some of you have read the email already, but I want to elaborate on a few of the points I made there. Because I do believe this is the biggest hurdle my contemporaries will face in our lifetimes.

First, though, I want to make a distinction.  We all know that young people spend too much time on their phones.  We know that older folks spend too much time on their phones as well, though at a lower rate.  And we assume these two experiences are basically the same—that tech addicts in both cohorts experience addiction the same way.  Any difference is a matter of degree, not kind. 

That’s not true.  There’s a much more important difference, which we haven’t quite reckoned with yet. Put it this way:

Home internet only became common in the late Nineties.  Not quite ten years later, Webster’s declared “Crackberry” its Word of the Year for 2006.  For those who don’t know or can’t remember, “Crackberry” was the nickname given to the early smartphone BlackBerry, in honor of its highly addictive nature.

We’ve always known that these technologies are habit-forming.  We just didn’t take it seriously.  Why?  Maybe because a BlackBerry in 2006 still wasn’t half as addictive as an iPhone in 2023.  More importantly, though, this older cohort—those who adopted smart technology as adults—remember what life was like before the internet.  

That means it’s easier for them to use these technologies moderately.  For those who do become addicted, they at least have “lived experience” of real life.  Also, they got their start with less advanced technologies, which are also less habit-forming.

As for my generation, we have no concept of what life was like before AIM, YouTube, Facebook, Call of Duty, texting, iPods, iPhones, MinecraftStarCraft, Twitter, Amazon, Snapchat, Netflix, TikTok…  The only “reality” we know is Virtual Reality.  Even if we were curious about life before (or beyond) the Screen, we’d never dare to take a peek.  This tech is becoming far more advanced—and far more addictive—with each passing day.  

We’ve been plugged in since we were children. And with each passing year, it gets harder to unplug. And why would we want to unplug, anyway? We have no idea what that feels like. We don’t even know what “unplugged” means.


Before we go on, let me be clear about another thing:  I had an idyllic childhood.  My Mom and Dad are best parents anyone could ever ask for.  They busted their butts to give me a good home and a good education.  They spent lots of quality time with me.  They drove me to all my wrestling meets and Model U.N. conferences.  They let me spend every Saturday with my friends.  

We lived in a big house with a big yard on the edge of the woods, so there was plenty of room for us to roam.  I got every book I ever wanted.  And they did limit the amount of time I was allowed to spend on the computer, in front of the television, etc. They did everything they possibly could, and so much more.

None of what I say here, then, is a reflection on their parenting.  It’s about the potency of modern technology. They didn’t understand, and we can’t blame them for that—no more than they can blame their own parents for insulating the house with asbestos. No one really understood how dangerous these technologies are, except the folks who made them.  That’s why Bill Gates kept them as far away from his children as possible.  I bet the CEO of McDonald’s doesn’t let his kids eat Happy Meals, either.

Anyway.  As I said to Rod, “I reminisce about characters from Age of Mythology more than I do my childhood friends.  I remember ‘visiting’ planets from the Jedi Knight series more vividly and more fondly than I do our family vacations.”  That’s all true, I’m sorry to say. And I could go on. 

One year, the local Boy Scout Council had its annual jamboree in the field on the other side of our woods.  It wasn’t our property, but it’s where I spent a huge part of my childhood playing.  In the summers, I hayed that field for the local farmer.  This was my home turf—and there were hundreds of other kids here, playing games and camping out!  Yet all I can remember is how badly I wanted to go home and play Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast.

My happiest memory of Halloween growing up is playing Tak and the Power of Juju with my cousin Zack before we went Trick-or-Treating. 

I renounced Christianity and became a neopagan because of how enthralled I was by Age of Mythology.  I spent my nights on blogs devoted to “Hellenic polytheistic reconstructionism.”  I devoured books on Greek mythology.  I used the Hymns of Orpheus as my prayer-book.  I bought a ceremonial goblet and stole wine from my dad’s cellar; I took the goblet and wine into the woods and made secret offerings to idols of Zeus and Apollo.

Most kids probably don’t share my interest in religion. But the fact that my worldview is so heavily conditioned by technology (the internet, video games, etc.) isn’t at all unusual.  If I’d been born a few years later, who knows?  Maybe I’d be calling myself transgender or pretending to have Tourette’s.  Maybe I would have joined ISIS.  There but for the grace of God…


[Fair warning:  this section is necessary but a little graphic. You may wish to skip it.]

Really, unless you grew up in the 2000s, you have no sense of the power these technologies have over young people.  They don’t pervert our sense of reality:  they shape our sense of reality.  

Let’s keep going with the trans example.  It’s not that these kids were happy being straight young men, and then the internet convinced them to call themselves girls.  There’s no divide between their pre-internet worldview and their post-internet worldview. The internet is a constant. Their whole understanding of “boy” and “girl,” of gender and sex and sexuality, is determined by the internet.

Obviously, nature plays its part.  Most people, once they finish puberty, will find themselves exclusively attracted to the opposite sex.  But the human brain is amazingly plastic.  It has an unlimited capacity to be deceived—and to deceive itself. 

So, yes: these boys are willing to dress like girls, have sex with other boys, take female replacement hormones, even castrate themselves—all for the sake of this trans charade. I know it’s hard to believe. Who would believe it, if the evidence wasn’t all around us?

Then again, think about all the terrible things that drug addicts will do to pay for their stuff.  They sell their bodies, and their children’s bodies.  They steal from their families and strangers.  They kill people.  Now, remember:  the internet is basically one endless shot of dopamine.  These kids are addicts.  And, like other addicts, they get desperate.


This is why I’m proud to call myself a Luddite.  It’s why I don’t have a cell phone or a Twitter or any of that nonsense.  It’s why I use a website blocker called Cold Turkey, to keep me from wasting hours a day on Wikipedia or The New York Times.  And it’s why I’m always harping on people to purge these technologies from their lives as much as humanly possible. 

I’m a product of this techno-dystopia. I’m a recovering addict. So, I have to purge these toxins from my life as much as possible. And I’m not judging you, dear reader, but my guess is that you’re on the same boat. 

Can these technologies be used in moderation?  Maybe.  I doubt it. But, really, it doesn’t matter, because basically everyone under the age of forty is a technoholic.  (So are many people over the age of forty, of course.)  And for addicts, abstention is the only moderation.  If you’re not constantly trying to minimize the amount of technology in your life, you’re going to backslide.  If you’re not swimming against the current, it will carry you backwards. At best, you’ll lose any progress you’ve made. At worst, it will sweep you out to sea. 

That’s what gives us Luddites this sense of urgency.  From the burgeoning mental-health crisis to the spread of radical ideologies to the decline of American small businesses to the collapse of news media, there aren’t many problems we can’t blame (at least in part) on these technologies. 

Online porn is now raising generations of violent men and vulnerable women.  The rancorous tone of social-media debates is now prevalent in real-life political discourse.  Companies like Amazon and Zoom enabled our governments to shut down most in-person commerce, education, and worship during the COVID pandemic.  Fantasy leagues ruined Superbowl parties.  And we could go on.

What’s most worrying, though, is this power these technologies have to completely dissociate us from reality.  With each passing year, our devices become more advanced.  They experience becomes more intense, more immersive, more addictive.  And with each passing generation, we plug our children into those devices at younger and younger ages.

In a couple of decades, Western peoples will no longer have any “lived experience” of reality.  We’ll spend our whole lives, from cradle to grave, in Virtual Reality. 

What will that look like?  I have no idea.  Maybe all the different companies whose devices condition our digital ecosystems will be consolidated by the government à la Brave New World.  Maybe this weakness will leave us vulnerable to attacks from rivals like China.  Or maybe we’ll fritter away what’s left of our humanity, keeping ourselves safe with drones and bombs, until we become so impotent that we simply vanish from the earth.


The latter, I think, is more likely. I’d just add one caveat.  I do believe that, in time, more and more of us will become disillusioned with this techno-dystopia.  I believe that a critical minority of Luddites will break from these digital ecosystems and demand their right to live in the real world.  It will be like Huxley’s “savage reservations,” or the Dread Zones from the movie Surrogate (2009). 

I expect there will be a lot of overlap between these Luddite groups and the orthodox Christians who are already gathering in intentional “Benedict Option” communities all across the West.  My wife was raised in one such community, and we now live in another.  In these places, children do not have unfettered access to the internet.  Older children are given flip phones.  Smartphones are unheard of. 

The difference is obvious as soon as you meet these kids.  They’re kinder.  They’re more polite, less awkward.  They’re not as loud or inane.  They’re more socially aware.  They like reading and playing outside.  They invent games for themselves.  The boys play happily with the girls, at least until they hit puberty.  But by the time they go to college, the men are much better at socializing with women (and vice-versa) than the average teenager.

This, by the way, is normal.  This is what kids are supposed to be like.  It’s what they were like, for the most part, before 1995.  And it’s what I want for my children. 

Giving your kids a good Luddite upbringing in 2023 is tough.  You need a community around you, so that Luddism is normative as well as normal.  Your boy won’t get picked on for not having the latest iPhone if all of his friends use a landline.

That’s why I mention the BenOp.  These days, only religious folk value this way of life. They put a high premium on value on living in accordance with nature, in harmony with neighbor, and in communion with God.  So, if I had to guess, the Luddite renaissance will also be a Christian renaissance.  The two will feed into each other.  They’ll flourish together. 

Then reality—real reality—will be normal for my sons and daughters.  I hope it will for yours, too.  No, it won’t be easy.  You may have to spend years deprogramming yourself.  I’m in that boat. And to be honest, I doubt even I’m halfway done. 

Still, life is better this way.  My God!  It’s better than I ever could have imagined.

“IT ALL DEPENDS ON WHOSE OX IS BEING GORED” When illegal migrants pause, try to stay in Mexico, commit crimes, or expect Mexican social services, then almost immediately Mexico City sends thousands of troops to close its border with Guatemala, deports the illegal crossers, and revives talk of building a border wall of its own.

Mexico Is Not Really 

an American Friend

By Victor Davis Hanson

American Greatness

January 19, 2023

Left-wing Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador recently praised a visiting Joe Biden: “Just imagine: There are 40 million Mexicans in the United States—40 million who were born here in Mexico, [or] who are the children of people who were born in Mexico!”

Why wouldn’t Obrador be delighted? Since Biden took office in January 2021, America has allowed some 5-6 million illegal entries across its southern border.

Obrador further congratulated the malleable Biden whom he apparently sees as a kindred but complacent left-wing spirit: “You are the first president of the United States in a very long time that has not built even one meter of wall.”

Translated that means Mexico is delighted the United States now cares little about the security of its own border, the disappearance of which apparently is wonderful news for Mexico.

Note that Mexico itself facilitates illegal transits across its own southern border—as long as such Central American and other global migrants keep heading northward into the United States.

But when or if they pause, try to stay in Mexico, commit crimes, or expect Mexican social services, then almost immediately Mexico City sends thousands of troops to close its border with Guatemala, deports the illegal crossers, and revives talk of building a border wall of its own.

Biden has demolished America’s southern border. His illegal nullification of U.S. immigration law is music to Obrador’s ears.

But it is a nightmare to Americans who poll overwhelming disapproval of the subversion of their own border security. They are exhausted by the influx of death-dealing drugs. And they are furious over the hundreds of billions of dollars diverted from their own strapped social services to attend to the needs of foreign nationals who have broken their laws.

Even overwhelmed blue sanctuary cities that once boasted of nullifying federal immigration law are now beginning to object to Biden’s complicity in Mexico’s manipulation of the border.

Obrador clearly is delighted that Biden is the first White House occupant who in matters of the shared southern border grants all of Mexico’s wishes, but almost none of his own citizens’.

That reality raises the question that if Mexico were a declared enemy of the United States, how would it behave any differently than it is now?

Take drugs, for example. American overdoses due to fentanyl and other opioids are nearing 100,000 deaths per year.

Almost all such lethal opiates are

manufactured in factories operated by drug

cartels in Mexico that enjoy de facto

immunity from prosecution. The Mexican

opioid industry was designed solely for

lucrative export to the United States—with

zero concern over the death and destruction

its products cause here.

Well aside from human trafficking and smuggling, cartel drugs indirectly earn the Mexican economy somewhere between $35-45 billion each year.

A hostile China profits by selling Mexicans the raw product. Beijing gains satisfaction that at the present death rate, more Americans will perish this decade alone from imported Mexican drugs than all the combat deaths in all the wars since America’s founding.

In that sense, Mexico is doing more damage to America than all our prior enemies combined.

Obrador is equally callous in bragging that he exports his own poor. Left unsaid is that a  naturally rich Mexico either will not, or cannot, adequately employ, feed, shelter, and protect its own impoverished citizens.

So instead, it cynically sees its own people as a lucrative export commodity while holding U.S. laws in veritable contempt.

Currently, Mexican nationals are sending nearly $60 billion a year in remittances from the United States to Mexico to aid friends and families who do not find enough succor from their government in Mexico City. Untaxed remittances far and away constitute the largest source of Mexico’s foreign exchange income.

Much of that gifting is made possible by generous American state and federal subsidies to illegal aliens. Frequent subsidized housing, healthcare, legal assistance, education, and food in the United States are often used to free up cash for illegals, who then send it to Mexico.

Mexico sees this export of its people as a win-win-win-win proposition.

Illegal immigration to America exempts Mexico from covering the social welfare costs of its poorest.

In safety-valve fashion, it exports the volatility of social inequality rather than spending large sums to address it.

Mexico sees its huge and growing expatriate community as a valuable lobbying lever inside America, given the longer Mexican nationals are absent from Mexico, the more they romanticize the country they fled.

Finally, Mexico is a left-wing nation. The more it sends its poor to the United States, the more it feels Democratic politicians who grant concessions to Mexico will gain valuable new political constituents—ensuring still further concessions.

One sure sign of historic national decline is the collective inability of a government and its people to defend their own borders and national sovereignty.

Mexico would happily agree.

THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA ARE NOT SAFE WITH JOE BIDEN IN THE WHITE HOUSE


Joe Biden just issued this shocking confession to Fox News’ Peter Doocy

Joe Biden may actually be in trouble this time.

There is even a real investigation.

And Joe Biden just issued this shocking confession to Fox News’ Peter Doocy.

In the first two years of Joe Biden’s reign, he escaped any real investigation into the Biden family’s alleged criminal enterprises.

That includes wayward son Hunter Biden’s escapades.

But now that could all be changing and even the DOJ is forced to investigate.

Down at Joe’s garage

It’s now been discovered that President Joe Biden didn’t have just one set of classified government documents that he mishandled, but multiple. 

Biden has now admitted to having in his private possession multiple sets of classified documents that he kept from his time as Vice President.

So much for the man who attacked Donald Trump as “irresponsible” for having classified documents at home.

And now we know where Biden was keeping the second batch of classified documents . . . at his personal residence in Delaware, in his garage, next to his Corvette.

So to sum it up, Trump had de-documents at his personal residence, and Joe Biden had secret classified documents not at one, but at two of his personal residences which were unguarded when he was not in them. Trump had his declassified government records under lock and key in his Mar Lago home which was under secret service protection

The difference is, a President has the power to declassify and keep documents for personal reasons, a Vice President does not.

So, if this does all pan out, Joe Biden is in potentially real trouble. 

More election tampering by the DOJ?

The White House Counsel’s Office explained that Biden lawyers “discovered among personal and political papers a small number of additional Obama-Biden Administration records with classified markings” and “all but one of these documents were found in storage space in the President’s Wilmington residence garage.” 

Another document was found “among stored materials in an adjacent room.” 

At least Biden’s lawyers reported that no additional documents were found at Biden’s other house in Rehoboth Beach. 

The Counsel’s office also made the bizarre claim “the Department of Justice was immediately notified” of the second batch of classified documents and arrangements were made for the Justice Department to take possession of the mishandled documents. 

It’s a bizarre claim because the documents were actually found on November 2, 2022, just days before the Midterm elections.

The DOJ did not report on their findings until after the Midterms. 

Very convenient.

Even worse, all the documents being magically found now were improperly taken by Biden when he left the Vice President’s office in 2017.

Somehow none of these documents were discovered before the 2020 election. 

We already know the DOJ and FBI colluded with Twitter and Facebook to hide details of Hunter Biden’s laptop before the 2020 elections.

And we now know Biden took classified documents that were somehow only found now after both the 2020 and 2022 elections.

When he was asked about the second batch of classified materials being found in his garage, Biden tried to explain it away saying his “Corvette is in a locked garage” (um, ok, that still doesn’t meet the standards for storing classified materials) and that he “immediately” cooperated with the National Archives and DOJ. 

What were you thinking?

Of course, the question was asked by Fox News’ Peter Doocy who has made it his mission to force the Biden administration into telling the truth.

And the question was asked as only Peter Doocy can ask it.

But once again, Biden skirted the very direct question and tried to claim he “immediately” cooperated.

Immediate as in years later, not months or days.

Only time will tell what, if anything, happens to Joe Biden over this clear breach of national security.

JESUS SAVES EVERYWHERE EXCEPT IN THE MALL OF AMERICA

National Insiders

A Man Enters the Mall of America With ‘Jesus Save’ Shirt ( )You Won’t Believe What Happens Next,

National Insiders

“JESUS SAVES” EVERYWHERE, EXCEPT IN THE MALL OF AMERICA IN MINNESOTA

It’s no secret that Americans’ religious liberties are under attack. For years, the radical left has gone to war with Christians. They sue us over their constitutionally protected faith, dragging Christians into court because they don’t support gay marriage or other left-wing holy grails.

During COVID, the government went after religious Americans. Democrat governors banned Christians from worshipping. In some states, they raided churches, sued pastors, and even threw some into jail. But the persecution only seems to be growing stronger. Now, its not just limited to Democrats. A man entered the Mall of America, wearing a “Jesus Saves” t-shirt. That is a very typical shirt many Christians wear, all the time, everywhere.

But guess what happened when security approached him?

A man wearing a “Jesus Saves” T-shirt was approached by security and told that he must remove the item of clothing or leave Mall of America, in a video clip that has gone viral on social media. The security guard can be heard explaining to the man that “Jesus is associated with religion and it’s offending people,” telling him, “If you want to shop here you need to take off that shirt.” A spokesman for Mall of America told the Daily Mail that the man was ultimately allowed to continue shopping while still wearing the shirt, but the more than two minutes of berating that the man has to endure from mall security certainly don’t suggest that ending.

MAN GETS TOLD TO LEAVE MALL OF AMERICA BECAUSE HIS SHIRT SAID JESUS SAVES 

🤡 (@CLOWNWORLD_) JANUARY 17, 2023

Something very wrong is going on in the Mall of America. Security guards confronted a man (who happens to be black) wearing a Christian t-shirt. They berated him for two minutes, demanding he takes off the shirt if he wanted to keep shopping.

The man stated he was bothering no one. He was simply walking through Macy’s. The mall claims that, eventually, the man was allowed to shop without removing the t-shirt. But some people are skeptical. The video of the encounter has gone viral and it is outraging Americans.

Nobody has the power to demand someone to remove their shirt because it has a religious message. A shopping mall might be privately owned, but it is a public space. And the Constitutional protects the religious liberties of someone within a public space.

Imagine if those security guards demanded a Muslim woman remove her hijab, because that is religious. The ACLU and every Democrat within a 50-mile radius would be marching on the Mall of America. But because this man had a “Jesus Saves” t-shirt, he is not allowed to shop?

According to reports, people are organizing to protest at the mall. They will wear their own “Jesus Saves” t-shirts to send a message to those security guards.

Honestly, those guards should be fired. They berated a man of color, demanding he removes his clothing, because of his religious faith. This is a gross violation of his First Amendment rights and his Civil Rights. Some say he should sue the mall. We’ll have to see what happens.

MAN GETS TOLD TO LEAVE MALL OF AMERICA BECAUSE HIS SHIRT SAID JESUS SAVES PIC.TWITTER.COM/TPY4QFX1X9

— CLOWN WORLD ™ 🤡 (@CLOWNWORLD_) JANUARY 17, 2023

Something very wrong is going on in the Mall of America. Security guards confronted a man (who happens to be black) wearing a Christian t-shirt. They berated him for two minutes, demanding he takes off the shirt if he wanted to keep shopping.

The man stated he was bothering no one. He was simply walking through Macy’s. The mall claims that, eventually, the man was allowed to shop without removing the t-shirt. But some people are skeptical. The video of the encounter has gone viral and it is outraging Americans.

Nobody has the power to demand someone to remove their shirt because it has a religious message. A shopping mall might be privately owned, but it is a public space. And the Constitutional protects the religious liberties of someone within a public space.

Imagine if those security guards demanded a Muslim woman remove her hijab, because that is religious. The ACLU and every Democrat within a 50-mile radius would be marching on the Mall of America. But because this man had a “Jesus Saves” t-shirt, he is not allowed to shop?

According to reports, people are organizing to protest at the mall. They will wear their own “Jesus Saves” t-shirts to send a message to those security guards.

Honestly, those guards should be fired. They berated a man of color, demanding he removes his clothing, because of his religious faith. This is a gross violation of his First Amendment rights and his Civil Rights. Some say he should sue the mall. We’ll have to see what happens.
